This thesis deals with the presentation of the wireless sensor networks and the use of the communication standards at the industry. We mention the applications of wireless sensors in the industrial, military, health and environmental field where they are widely used in order to monitor and control processes. We describe the factors that influence the design of a wireless network such as fault tolerance according to installation conditions, scalability and energy consumption. Finally, we analyze the benefits of wireless sensors networks in the industrial environment. Furthermore, is made a detailed description of the communication standards which used in industrial facilities by analyzing the architecture of each standard, the device they use within the network and eventually we make a comparative study among them. Finally, we present a simulation software for the design of an industrial network via the PROSOFT in computer environment and we present selective case studies of industrial companies which uses the wireless communication for plant networks.
